This is the 2011 brew and they've changed the malt up a little bit from previous years. They've switched to Moravian 37 and Munich malt.

Pours a nice clear medium yellow with a big frothy white head. The foam slowly settles and leaves plenty of lacing stuck to the walls of the glass. Small bubbles rise from the bottom and make their way to the top. A bit lighter in color than I recall in previous years but that's understandable with the change in the malt.

Smells slightly sweet with a nice toasty note and some nice biscuity notes. Just a light fruity touch of hops in there along with a bready note and a hint of yeast twang.

Smooth malty body with a nice sweetness up front. Light toast and very light bready flavors. Hops are more present than in previous years with a nice light fruity flavor and a touch of grassiness.

Great maibock and one of my favorite to see return each year. I always seem to consume a good number of 12 packs of Summit Maibock every season. Looking forward to doing the same this year.

Color is clear gold, small white thin head of fluff that faded quick, leaves light and tiny spotty lace. Smells of musty grass and sweet malt, citrusy note in there and smells a tad skunky. Taste is mild and soft of malt and has a clean hop bitterness thats a bit oily, has a breadish quality to its flavor and drying with hints of floral character lingering. Feel is sharp at first with a twinge of hoppyness with strange piney drying qualities, is pretty full-medium bodied and has a long lasting coating of creamy butter somewhat waxy. OK brew but is passable to others of the same style.
